Strictly Come Dancing: Michael Vaughan teases 'romantic' performance

Michael Vaughan (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing star Michael Vaughan has teased his romantic performance ahead of tonight's first live show.

The England cricket captain will be seen performing with pro partner Natalie Lowe on tonight's performance episode.

Writing in his weekly blog for the Daily Telegraph, Michael revealed: "Natalie and I are doing a waltz in tonight’s show. I think I’ve got it… the wife hasn’t seen it yet but the kids came and watched on Sunday. They thought it was hilarious.

"In the dance, we’ll look like we’ve just been to an evening do and we’re having a row. We fall out a bit, make up, then fall out again. It’s a bit romantic in stages. Though to be honest I’m not thinking about the romance, I’m thinking about my feet."

Michael also confessed that the amount work that the pro dancers put in took him by surprise.

He said: "What’s hit home is how hard the dancers work. I presumed someone else would do the dances for us. But Natalie does it all, choreography included. And she has to work out how to teach a novice like me. The method she’s gone for is repetitive action, and lots of it."
